I should like to ask the Prime Minister a question. Subsection 5 says:
The employer of a person who holds a certificate of exemption under this act shall be liable to pay the like contributions as would be payable by him as employer's contributions if -that person were a person insured under this act, and in this act any reference to the employer's contribution shall be construed as including a contribution payable under this subsection.
Section 16 was rather glossed over, but I notice among the exempted persons under subsection (b) we have-
-a person who is employed in an occupation which is seasonal and does not ordinarily extend over more than twenty-two weeks in any year and who is not ordinarily employed in any other occupation which is insurable employment; or
(c) a person who habitually works for less than the ordinary working day-
I wonder why it is provided that in this case the employer must pay the contribution. Will the Prime Minister explain?
